The Towne Law Firm, P.C. services

The Towne Law Firm, P.C. offers professional legal representation to individual and business immigration clients throughout the United States and beyond. Our firm handles a wide variety of immigration matters including family-based and employment-based immigrant petitions, nonimmigrant petitions for foreign workers, including H-1B’s and O-1’s, waiver applications, and citizenship and naturalization applications. Our goal is to help reunite families and enable corporations to hire the right person for the job, regardless of their nationality.

Our dedicated team of lawyers can help you or your company navigate the immigration process smoothly. Whether your case involves representation before the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Consulates, or other governmental agencies involved in the immigration process, we can help.

Family Based Immigration

We will help you through the process of applying for your family member to live in the United States as a lawful permanent resident. If you are a United States citizen, you may file a petition on behalf of your:

  • Fiancé(e)
  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Siblings

If you are a lawful permanent resident, you may file a petition on behalf of your:

  • Spouse
  • Children (if unmarried)

We will advise and counsel you throughout all aspects of your case. We will prepare and file the immigrant petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, respond to any and all requests for evidence and help you through each and every stage of the immigration process.

Employment Based Immigration

We prepare all of the paperwork necessary to obtain a green card through employment. Whether you are the employer looking to make your temporary worker permanent or the worker wishing to settle in the United States on a permanent basis, we will evaluate the options available to you based upon the individual circumstances of your case and guide you throughout the entire process. We represent employers in Labor Certifications and immigrant petitions for alien workers, based upon any of the following categories:

  • Aliens of Extraordinary Ability
  • Outstanding Professors and Researchers
  • Multinational Executives and Managers
  • Advanced Degree Professionals [PERM-based or National Interest Waiver]
  • Professionals
  • Skilled Workers
  • Unskilled Workers

We also represent workers seeking to file self-petitions through national interest waivers and as aliens of extraordinary ability.

Temporary Workers

Whether you have received a job offer from a U.S. employer or you are an employer planning to hire a foreign worker, we will prepare and file all of the paperwork to ensure that the process goes smoothly. We handle all manner of visas for temporary workers. The most common are listed below:

Citizenship and Naturalization

We will guide you through your application for naturalization or application for a certificate of citizenship. We start each case by making a formal evaluation of whether naturalization is appropriate for you. Only after this evaluation has been made, we will proceed with filing of your application.

Business and Investor Visas

For investors looking to purchase existing businesses in the US, we offer expertise and guidance on business visas and the associated legal processes. Our goal is to streamline the visa application, making it easier for potential owners to acquire and manage successful ventures.
